Hummingbirds in a Changing World with Susan Wethington
What are the challenges that hummingbirds face and what can we do to help? Changing land use patterns, habitat loss, and changing climate conditions are significant drivers that affect hummingbirds’ ability to survive and thrive. The Hummingbird Monitoring Network is working with multiple universities and organizations to understand and predict how hummingbirds will respond to these changes. In this presentation, Dr. Wethington will present information about hummingbirds, some recent research results that suggest how hummingbirds may respond to these changes, and offer suggestions on how each of us can help hummingbirds thrive.

Recent Seasonal Distribution and Status Arizona Birds
with Troy Corman
Many of us that bird regularly have noticed that some birds are migrating earlier and new species are showing up in places where we never have seen them before. This is an opportunity to learn from a pro what really is happening. Troy’s presentation will highlight the steady (and sometimes rapid) changes in the distribution and seasonal status of Arizona birds during the past decade or so. Topics will include not only recent range shifts of certain species of birds, but shifts in timing of migration, timing of nesting, and species which now winter regularly that historically were not found or rarely detected during the winter in the state. Seasonal abundance of species has also changed for many species and some of these will be discussed.
